Insert Game Disc - Please Help

Post by Syra on Fri 08 Jul 2011, 09:07

Hi,

I had most of the expansion packs, from your site, and everything worked just fine. I decided to add Generations and the rest so I uninstalled everything and started fresh. Followed all the instructions, didn't crack, undated after each installation, and finally placed the crack in the correct folder. Can't start the game though. I keep getting the Insert Game Disc message. Can you please help me?

program files\electronic arts\the sims3\game\bin. Like I said I had all the expansion packs up and running with the exception of late night, outdoor living and generations. Now I'm starting to wonder if maybe my Ambitions is giving me the problem. My base game and Ambitions are retail. I am starting all over again and hopefully I an get it to work.

//EDIT

Ok so I went back installed the base game, then generations and then the rest, updated the game, made sure everything was closed and then applied the crack. Still getting the insert game disc message. I then tried once again to open without using the launcher and all I get is this error.

Unable to start game

Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)

Ah yes, well, your crack is in the right place.
You say you did a clean install, did you restart your pc after you uninstalled the previous install before reinstalling?

Ok, there have been other people who reported problems when they combined retail with downloaded files. How would you feel about downloading G4TW base game and ambitions and installing them? You can still use your backed-up save games.

Hello,

Looking at your screenshot, I see that you're missing almost all the files for the game. Your game folder seems almost empty.
Please do as following:

1. Completely uninstall the base game.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall the base game.
4. Apply this Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems (Read instructions carefully!)
5. Start the game and see if it works now. Good luck!
